Well Waddaya Know XII

Last week's question and answer:
Which part of the brain is not involved in speech?
Parietal Lobe
9 (32%)
Temporal Lobe
5 (17%)
Frontal Lobe
4 (14%)
Occipital Lobe
17 (60%)

Votes so far: 28

The answer is the occipital lobe. Broca's area, found in the frontal lobe, is responsible for the motor skills involved in speech. Wernicke's area found in the temporal lobe, is respomsible for assigning meaning to words. In the parietal lobe is an area which is responsible for grammar.
This week's question is up to the left. Enjoy!
